7:03 am
mix in with rain south of philadelphia. certainly by tomorrow we'll warm back up and spring will try to kick into gear. >> we look forward to that. now to mystery in mississippi. a black man found dead happening from a tree and this morning the fbi is trying to determine if he was killed or committed suicide. abc's pierre thomas is in washington with the latest. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. it's a mystery down south that evokes some of the haunting searing oil imagines of the past a black man hanging from a tree in mississippi. this morning, fbi in mississippi mississippi scouring an horrific scene a body hanging from a tree with a white sheet around the neck discovered 500 yards from the home of otis byrd missing since march 2nd. >> i knew mr. byrd and his family. i had dream in this world they would found a black man hung in a tree. >> reporter: authorities still
7:04 am
trying to determine the identity of the body but strongly suspect the deceased is byrd a man they say had a violent past of his own convicted of murdering a white woman in 1980. but authorities are adamant it's too early to know exactly what this is. >> we don't know what happened out there. we don't know if it's a suicide, homicide. >> reporter: the naacp concerned it might be a hate crime is demanding a full scale federal investigation. the fbi is launching a preliminary civil rights probe, but the sheriff was trying to calm concerns and urging a shocked community not to speculate. >> there's no proof that this sis in retaliation for anything that happened in 1980. there is no evidence pointed towards that so let's not make this out to be something it's not. >> reporter: fbi agents now hunting for clues that would reveal what happened. authorities say they knew of no threats against byrd but sources say at this point nothing can be ruled out. so many question george. >> sure are, pierre. thanks very much. we're going to turn to those nuclear negotiations with iran the clock ticking, a deadline
7:05 am
looming and overnight president obama made an appeal directly to the iranian people urgeing them to pressure their leaders to accept a deal. jon karl tracking the talks. they are closing in on a deal but still have gaps. >> reporter: george they are close. the deal is almost done. the biggest remaining question right now is whether or not the iranian supreme leader. ayatollah khomeini will go along with it. in that appeal the president called the deal an historic opportunity. >> i believe we have an opportunity to resolve this peacefully an opportunity we should not miss. >> and, jon, you know the iranians have to agree to it and get all five european countries to agree but the president has problems with congress. >> reporter: congress is demanding both democrats and republicans, demanding whatever deal is struck congress should have a chance to vote on it yes
7:06 am
or no. in fact george 350 members of the house including a lot of democrats and the top democrat on the international relations committee wrote a letter to the president yesterday saying that if there is a deal congress needs to weigh in on whether or not to lift sanctions. >> overwhelming but pushing back on that. jon, thanks very much. much more on sunday on "this week." >> look forward to that. the latest on that deadly terrorist attack at a museum. isis is now claiming responsibility for the massacre and warning there will be more like it. abc's alex marquardt is in tunisia with the latest. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, robin. at least nine people have now been arrested in connection with the attack here at the museum security has been beefed up around the country as authorities hunt for more suspected members of isis. this morning, a new photo showing one of the attackers appearing to shoot victims point-blank. a chilling claim of responsibility. in an audio recording posted online isis praised its knights of the caliphate for this chaos
7:07 am
that left at least 20 european tourists dead vowing the attack is just the first drop of rain. tunisian officials now say the two gunmen who were armed with grenades and ak-47s left in december to be trained by isis in libya. tunisia's known not just as a popular western tourist destination but now also the foreign country that has sent more foreign fighters to join isis than any other, as many as 3,000. and now they're waging jihad at home. we saw the aftermath, broken glass from a tour bus, bloodstains on the ground. inside a crime scene. much of the museum where people fled where they hid where they were killed is still cordoned off. when the shooting started everyone ran, one guard hiding for almost 24 hours in the museum's sarcophagus room. this spanish couple the girlfriend 4 months pregnant hiding overnight long after the
7:08 am
attack was over. we hid in a room where they kept the trash, he said. we stayed there hearing everything and waiting for it to stop. experts say they fear this is only the beginning of more violence here in tunisia where isis has long called for attacks. the relative peace here may soon be a thing of the past as isis' ideology spreads around the world. george. >> okay alex thanks. the latest from the boston marathon many booing trial where the jury was shown crucial evidence friday. these photos the remains of a pressure cooker bomb like the one set off at the finish line. tom llamas is covering the trial in boston. good morning. >> reporter: george good morning to you. for the past two days jurors have pretty much been put through a csi course learning about fingerprints computer forensics and bombs, in fact learning a lot about this fuse which the tsarnaev brothers had bunches of to light explosives. it's not only the jurors playing close attention to the evidence. in court thursday prosecutors
7:09 am
presenting an anatomy of terror highlighting this image of pressure cooker bomb embedded into the rear door of a honda. the bomb thrown at police they say, during that shootout in a boston suburb days after the marathon bombing. prosecutors showing it to jurors in court piece by piece, the same type as the bombs they say were used at the finish line of the boston marathon. three people died in those blasts, more than 260 injured including liz norton's two sons j.p. and paul who each lost a leg that day. a moment she recounted on "gma" the morning after the bombing. >> it's terrible. like i want to wake up and it not be real. >> reporter: her sons standing steps from dzhokhar tsarnaev when he planted his backpack one of those bombs inside and walked off. she's been in court nearly every day since the trial started. dzhokhar's lawyer's are fighting
7:10 am
for his life saying he was under the spell of his older brother tamerlan something liz doesn't buy. do you think he deserves the death penalty? >> i do. that would be justice for myself as a mom, my two boys were so hurt and so many killed that day and they just didn't have a care in the world. they knew what they were doing. >> reporter: she says her sons have accepted their new lives and challenges but she has not. >> i just can't get over it. it con supers my life. i watch it and pain doesn't go away. >> reporter: prosecutors hope to rest the case next week and the defense takes over. this case is moving fast. >> thanks very much. to amy now with today's other top stories. got a lot of outrage at uva. >> and now martese johnson is talking about that violent encounter with officers appearing at a news conference with his attorney johnson said he is shocked that his face was slammed into the pavement and the trauma will be with him forever. virginia state police are investigating why johnson ended up pinned to the ground while being arrested outside a bar by
7:11 am
alcohol beverage control agents. he needed ten stitches to close that wound in his head. agents say he was profane and belligerent. student protesters are vowing to stand with johnson, many arguing that race played a role in how he was treated. well tough talk from the white house this morning aimed at israel. president obama told benjamin netanyahu over the phone thursday that the u.s. will now quote, reassess its relationship with israel in the wake of netanyahu's pre-election rhetoric imposing a palestinian state. earlier in the day netanyahu tried to walk back tack back his rhetoric saying he supports palestinian statehood if conditions in the region improve. well a surprising revelation about the ebola outbreak that claimed more than 10,000 lives in west africa. newly revealed e-mails show the world health organization delayed declaring an emergency for weeks because it was concerned about the political and economic consequences. critics say that delay cost lives and crucial response time.
7:12 am
finally a little boy from pennsylvania is back home this morning after what's being called a medical miracle. 22-month-old gardell martin had no pulse when he was pulled from an icy creek near his home. emts began cpr but an hour later at the hospital he still wasn't breathing. doctors, however, did not give up. 101 minutes after gardell had stopped breathing, they were stunned because suddenly his pulse was back. he was alive. >> that's amazing. >> my 23 years i have not seen an hour and 41 minutes come back to this degree of neurologic recovery. that doesn't happen by accident. it happens because people are trained, and they're trained well. >> i just can't thank them enough. we feel very unworthy and very grateful. >> wow. doctors say gardell's body temperature plummeted to 75 and that protected his vital organs. he has made a complete recovery and this took a team of emts because you can only perform cpr for a few minutes at a time so
7:13 am
they were just taking sessions and didn't give up. >> no brain damage. >> he's smiling, laughing talking. completely back to normal. >> amazing. >> great story. >> that takes great training and also takes a little -- >> a little combination of the two. i agree with you, lara. a scary encounter in the sky all caught on camera. a drone flying feet from news helicopters, one of those choppers even capturing the man operating the drone on camera. abc's david kerley has that story for us. >> hey, ed we just got droned. >> reporter: calmness in a close call. that's a drone flying dangerously close to two tv news choppers including our seattle affiliate komo 4. >> above air 4. he's got to be what 1500 feet. >> reporter: nearly four times higher than the regulations allow. seattle has seen drone flights that violate the regulations before. remember this one, that flew dangerously close to the space needle last summer. but this one flying in controlled airspace scaring and angering the pilots. >> any contact with the rotor
7:14 am
blade could and probably will be catastrophic. >> reporter: what's next is remarkable. >> i want to figure out who is doing this. >> reporter: the cameraman is able to follow the drone as it dives then buzzing over neighborhood roof tops all violations and the drone leads the camera right to the man with the remote. >> that's him and his drone. >> we're in the wild west phase of drone development and anybody can get in a catalog and buy a fairly sophisticated drone. >> reporter: a dangerous trend. >> not a matter if there is going to be collision between a real aircraft and one of these toys but a matter of when. >> reporter: that photographer followed the operator all the way to a home law enforcement knocked and were told no one owned a drone there. but the faa is now joining the investigation and will decide if legal action will be taken for flying so close to those choppers. david kerley, abc news, washington. amazing story, i think he is right. it is bound to happen so got to turn to march madness, robin, big smile on your face and big
